About our product:
What time should I take The POE?
There is no "right" time to take your daily dose of The POWER of Elderberries. Many of our customers take their dose as part of their morning routine, but we also have a number of customers who take theirs before bed instead to help with stuffy noses/sinuses at night. It's really whatever works best for you.
Where is your local raw honey from?
We use local raw honey from South Carolina. However, we have many customers that use our elderberry syrup and are finding relief that live all over the country! The raw honey that is used in our elderberry syrup is never pasteurized from the time it leaves the hive to when you ingest it in our elderberry syrup. This ensures all of the active enzymes and health benefits stay intact.
